Damages - Season 3 [DVD] 
Get £1 Off Amazon Video*
Inspired by recent worldwide economic events, the acclaimed third season of the award-winning legal thriller stars two-time Emmy®-winner Glenn Close as litigator Patty Hewes. Conftonting the most challenging case of her illustrious career, Patty and trusted lieutenant Tom Shayes (Tate Donovan) meet their match against the manipulative Tobin family empire, matriarch Marilyn (Lily Tomlin), son Joe (Campbell Scott) and the clan's loyal attorney Leonard Winstone (Martin Short). When former protégée Ellen Parsons (Rose Byrne) is also pulled into the maelstrom, she discovers she hasn't escaped Patty Hewes after all.
After the middling second season of complex legal thriller Damages, the onus was very much on season three to recapture the excellent of the show’s first run. Fortunately, this is a real return to form, and frequently finds the programme very much at its best.
This time in Damages, Glenn Close’s Patty Hewes remains as ruthless as always, and this time, the programme makers have put her up against a case as tough as any she’s faced. For this time, she’s working for the American government, charged with trying to get back billions of dollars. It’s a tough job, and it’s going to take the best in the business to even attempt it. Which is where Hewes comes in.
Once again, Glenn Close is quite brilliant here, anchoring the show with a terrific central turn. Rose Byrne returns too, and again provides a strong foil for Close. And in this third season, Campbell Scott plays Joe Tobin, although he struggles to make too much of an impact. Furthermore, there’s an unwillingness to let go of a character from earlier series, which doesn’t help Damages here.
But it’s still a rollicking-good television series. Damages remains one of the most compelling legal thrillers that television has produced in recent times, and the likelihood is that this third season is the last. However, the good news is that it’s going out in fine form… --Jon Foster

We can only hope for season 4, but if not, season 3 was a good way to go out.
The familiar format of showing you an event in "flash forward" and the main action explaining how we got there.
If you had doubts about series two, this is a reassuring return to the style and tension of series one.
For a very fair cost we the family will enjoy again and again by one and all.
So can I now take a moment please on behalf of our whole family group to state loudly here and now
...`We Thank You`
